[resolved] sticky on page of posts (5 posts)

    Hi, I've been searcging all over to get some code to get the sticky feature working on the sample 'page of posts' from the wp codex site.

    I am a bit surprised that the option to allow stickys is pressent (set a variable at the beginning of the template to '0'), but that this doesn't show the stickys on the page.

    For anything other than a blog kind of site/page this is quite an essential feature I'd say.

    (I must be overlooking something. Any help?)

    Thanks.

    Put this in your Page Template

    <?php
    $args=array(
      'post__in'=>get_option('sticky_posts'),
      'post_type' => 'post',
      'post_status' => 'publish',
      'posts_per_page' => -1,
      'caller_get_posts'=> 1
    );
    $my_query = null;
    $my_query = new WP_Query($args);
    if( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
      while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
        <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
        <?php
        the_content();
      endwhile;
    }
    wp_reset_query();  // Restore global post data stomped by the_post().
    ?>

    Thanks!, I tried something like that but with no luck so far, is this documented somewhere in the codex?

    What did NOT work. Paste your complete Page Template in a pastebin such as wordpress.pastebin.com and report the link back here and maybe someone can spot the problem.

    Don't think that's in Codex.

    Sorry about the confusion, I am sure this will work , what I tryed before did not work I ment. I am not a thorrough breed php coder, (though I occasionally write some working lines of code.)

    Thanks for the help.
